Free Flares & Light Leaks

Today I am releasing a series of lens flares and light leaks for free. These are only HD, but are high enough quality to be easily upscaled to 4K.


In your NLE of choice, it is simple to get a flare or light leak over your video. In your opacity / transparency set the blend mode to "screen", and depending on the desired strength of the effect, set your transparency accordingly. The closer to 0% the less of an effect.
